I probably shouldn’t blog about this because I’m definitely not “in the know”…
Over the past year or so, there has apparently been quite a bit of turnover at SeaDream Yacht Club. The UK Director of Sales who worked for the company for years left in January of this year, as Pam Conover, former big wig for Seabourn took over.
On our cruise in May, there was a new cruise director named Nat Green aboard. Bill and I got to meet him and really enjoyed him. But then this morning, someone on Cruise Critic said Nat was “long gone”. Our cruise was only a few months ago and Nat was new then, so it makes me wonder what happened if he’s really already “long gone”. He seemed excited to be onboard and had told us about some big plans. Other people who had met him seemed to like him a lot. So if he left, I wonder why…
One of our favorite waiters “jumped ship” and moved on to Seabourn, while a few others now work for Azamara.
And then there’s been the complaining about kids on the ships as prices have gone downhill. I don’t know what’s going on at SeaDream, but it’s troubling. Bill and I have enjoyed all three cruises with them, regardless. I sure hate to see such a nice cruise line go downhill.
As for our upcoming travel plans, they haven’t really been settled yet. I think we’ll probably go to Europe again, though. I don’t know where or exactly when. Right now, we’re just trying to deal with all the government shutdown business and my dental woes.
Speaking of Seabourn, I would like to try them at some point… they definitely have nicer prices than SeaDream has. On the other hand, I love SeaDream’s staff… those who haven’t jumped ship, that is.
